I'm a software developer with about 6 years experience, and act as the
lead for application and some network security issues at my current
employer.

My manager wants me to a certification, and ideally I would go with
the CISSP but I don't have 4 years employment experience in the
information security field.

For whatever it's worth, a colleague in a similar situation found that
ISC2 also has an Associate CISSP certification that lacks the
experience requirement and paves the way for moving to the CISSP:

But, given that you come from a development background, perhaps a less
general, more development-specific security certification would be
compelling. You might also look into CSAD from EC Council, or SANS
CSSLP as a certification path.  These both would capitalize on your
development experience and application security responsibilities.
These skills are quite in demand.
